Make a Black and White Photo with Light Contrast Grit and Form
--- MacWorld’s pick for the App Gems of the Year Award ---

Everyone knows it doesn't get better than classic Black & White - it's the artistic soul of photography. Referencing one of our favorite Ansel Adams quotes: "Great Black & White photos aren't taken - they're made". Using Dramatic Black & White you can make your own black and white photographs, ones where light and contrast, grit and form come together to tell a story; ones where stone and sky, water and light transcend the material world and ascend to the Photographers’ Gallery. With Dramatic Black & White there are no mistakes you can't fix, no limits to your vision, no stopping until you're finished, nothing to hold you back from truly 'making your photos' and making them - Oh.My.Gosh. good!

JixiPix's Dramatic Black & White app starts by leaving color in the rear view mirror, and enables you to make expert adjustments with easy-to-use, fully customizable controls to contrast and light, texture and shape. Before your eyes, watch your photo transform into the dramatic looks of the past and cutting-edge styles of the present.

App review

This app is quite remarkable. It allows a lot of latitude while editing. The effects one can apply are numerous while allowing additional adjustments. It is very easy to use as are all programs related to this company’s apps. I have several; I use them for different types of photos. More importantly I have never had an issue with this app.

Needs improvement and spotlight has got to go

I gave this app two stars even though I like it. The Spotlight makes it a pain in the rear to use. It should be optional and should not reset itself when you change to a different filter. That is the main reason I do not use the app.

I also wish that it had a slider to change the strength of the filter. Adding an adjustable dodge and burn tool and a contrast tool (no, not the sliding bar the app has), and a saturation tool to fine tone the highlights and shadows would be great.

I have also noticed that when you change the strength of the red, blue, or green filter, the other two move. It should not be that. They should be completely independent from each other. Changing one should not move the other two filters.

Great app

This is a fantastic app. I started making dramatic photos and I am in love with the app . Maybe in the future the developers can add more filters but over all I am impressed. Keep up the good work guys.
